World Gold 2007

Conference Proceedings
Published in 2007

World Gold 2007 was a collaboration of efforts between Australia, Canada and South Africa. The key focus of the conference was sustainability with papers discussing best practice in social, environmental, economic and technical sustainability of mining operations. Several papers on exploration also feature in the volume.

The current ‘super-cycle’ in mining – spurred by voracious Chinese and Indian appetites for virtually all metals has created a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for gold and all metals and yet amidst the opportunities there are also some threats for the industry. Limited gold exploration success over the last ten years, with little immediate prospect for revolutionary success, has resulted in a scarcity of new gold developments. To maintain supply the industry is redeveloping brownfields and revisiting known ‘old’ (submarginal) deposits with lower precious metals content and often higher costs.

All-time high non-gold metal prices present opportunities for by- and co-products from gold operations to improve the feasibility of previously marginal operations. The challenge for the industry is to ensure sustainability within these new opportunities – sustainability in all aspects, including environmental, technical, safety and community support. New developments will require greater focus for best practice in social, environmental, economic and technical sustainability of mining operations.
